Dubai offers a dynamic lifestyle, but it also presents unique challenges, particularly in the realm of domestic help. For single, divorced, or widowed fathers, navigating the complexities of sponsoring a maid can seem daunting. Unlike bachelors, who are generally not permitted to sponsor maids, fathers with custody of their children can sponsor domestic help, provided they meet certain criteria. Relocate MENA is here to demystify this process and offer comprehensive support.
The Legal Landscape
In Dubai, the law is clear: bachelors are not allowed to sponsor maids. However, the situation is different for single fathers—whether divorced, widowed, or single—who have the responsibility of caring for their children. The law permits them to sponsor domestic help, but they must meet specific criteria to do so.
Criteria for Maid Sponsorship by Single Fathers
The father must provide legal documents proving custody of the children.
He must have a minimum monthly income (the specific amount varies and should be verified with current regulations).
Proof of suitable living accommodations for the maid, ensuring privacy and comfort, is required.
If employed, an NOC from the employer stating the father’s position, salary, and confirmation of employment is necessary.
